Romeo and Juliet Postponement 15
Apr

By Open Air Theatre

Following the extension of London theatre closures and continued government restrictions, we are sad to confirm that our production of Romeo and Juliet – which was to have started rehearsals in May – has been postponed until 2021. This follows our previous announcement about 101 Dalmatians, which now opens the 2021 season.

As a result of the delayed opening of the 2020 season, Jimmy Carr’s, Terribly Funny, and Shakespeare for Every Day of the Year LIVE have also been rescheduled.

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is a charity which operates without any public subsidy and so must generate the vast majority of its income from ticket sales. Although this decision has been unavoidable, our thoughts are very much with all those who were due to work on the shows with us this summer.

101 Dalmatians opens the 2021 season, running from 15 May – 20 June 2021, with Romeo and Juliet now running from 26 June to 24 July 2021. Jimmy Carr’s Terribly Funny is rescheduled for 11 July 2021 and Shakespeare for Every Day of the Year LIVE on 18 July 2021 (casting for this event will be confirmed in due course).

We will be in contact with all ticket holders today, 15 April.

We still intend to re-open this year for Carousel (31 July – 19 September), alongside daytime performances of Dragons and Mythical Beasts (11 August – 6 September).
